The team says it will be a two-year deal guaranteeing him at least $23 million dollars. Robertson faced the Phillies in the 2009 World Series with the Yankees, throwing 2 1/2 scoreless innings with two strikeouts over as many appearances. Based on his track record, Robertson will provide an instant upgrade to a Philadelphia bullpen that ranked in the bottom tier of the National League last season and held the Phillies back as they chased the NL East title. Last season, he pitched for the Yankees, winning 8 games, saving 5, and had an ERA of 3.23. He's served primarily as a setup man amongst other elite relievers. He will now try to bring that consistency to the Philadelphia bullpen.
"Philly really checked off all the boxes for me", Robertson told MLB.com. "It's a place where I'll get a lot of opportunities to pitch in the back end of the bullpen and I don't see any reason why we can't get in the post-season".
"They have a great fan base, a handsome ballpark and a special focus on charity", Robertson told MLB.com.
